The Heist

heistGuess who is back…

“He paused at a kiosk to see whether he was being followed and then continued on in the same direction.  He was below average in height – five foot eight perhaps, but no more – and had the spare physique of a cyclist.  The face was long and narrow at the chin, with wide cheekbones and a slender nose that looked as though it had been carved from wood.  The eyes that peered from beneath the brim of his flat cap were unnaturally green.”

The English Girl

image“Whatever it is, it had better be something big.’ I’m Gabriel Allon. I only do big.”

In The English Girl Gabriel Allon does big.  It is interesting “watching” Gabriel Allon grow and grow older as the master spy for Israel.  As he takes on less of an operational role others take on a bigger part.  In this Daniel Silva best seller the world may not hinge completely on Allon’s actions so this novel is a little different.  It is no less action packed or thrilling just a little different.  The English Girl is almost two novels as one story seems to end as you’ll notice as you get about halfway and it seems to be winding down.  It powers back up in the City of Heretics.
